Vertical growth around the western fringes of Piedmont Park continues, and Atlantans hoping to live the highlife in such a choice location should expect some of the city’s highest rents as well.
The latest entrant to the deluxe rental high-rise category near the park is Vireo Atlanta, which Ray Crocker, vice president of development for the Southeast at LMC, the developer, says is aiming “to set a new standard for elegant living in Atlanta.”
Pre-leasing has launched, and getting a foot in the door at Vireo’s smallest available units (for now) will cost $2,030 monthly and up.
First move-ins at the 13th Street building are expected next month. Even smaller studios (488 square feet) will eventually be included in the mix.
The larger two-bedroom flats available now are priced around $3,000.
So what sort of lifestyle does renting there entail?
With 310 apartments in 26 stories, the building has an amenitized courtyard plaza and what sounds like a rooftop amenity oasis: resort-style swimming pool, grilling station, lounge areas, two fire pits, and community gaming tables. Elsewhere, naturally, is a fitness center, pet wash, and stations to clean and repair bicycles.
Apartments have smart locks, floor-to-ceiling windows, quartz counters in kitchens and bathrooms, and wine fridges in certain floorplans.
Conversely, the floors of apartments are alternately described in marketing materials as “luxury vinyl tile” and “wood-inspired flooring.”
Along 13th street, “ground-level terraces [will] enable residents to further connect with the central Midtown neighborhood,” per a company release.
The project celebrated its topping-out in November. It neighbors YOO on the Park apartments, which debuted following years of hype in 2017.
